The Skinny: Wretched from the remnants of Obsidian Reign in 2008 and recast into Hero’s Last Rite, the band has quickly become a towering pillar in the New Brunswick metal community. Consisting of vocalist Stephen McDonald, bassist Paul Vidal, drummer Dan Rogers and guitarists Mike Davidson and Tim Gorman, Hero’s Last Rite takes rein of the classic thrash and death metal sound and instills their own voice into it. The new 11 song album Inevitable is the End was recorded at Dan Rogers’ Needlenose Studios, in Fredericton, N.B.
